21st September 2012 Leave a comment Psycho-dimensional infographic for navigating the psychotherapeutic conception of the individual self and its defences. David_Beautiful Thanks for this observation. The diagram makes no truth claims. It simply visualizes a perspective. Psychological defenses exist. This is one school’s approach to ordering and categorising them. Psychoanalysis & Psychotherapy are related but different in approach. I munge them a bit. But I’m not sure that’s helpful. I am working on a Snake Oil for therapies. It’ll be ready soon. pasabaporaqui Thank you for your answer! I am salivating in anticipation Tim Every day as a child, we’d all fit somewhere on that quadrant. The only one who’d fit every moment in ‘healthy and happy child’ would grow up to be quite boring I think.
